It’s not often an individual collects figures of 8-43 and ends up on the losing side.
But bowler Matt Keen did just that as winless Sussex League Division 2 side Goring went down by one wicket in a low-scoring thriller against Bognor Regis on Saturday.
Overseas Kellon Carmichael’s half-century (51) proved key as the home side were all out for just 99 in 34.4 overs.
Opening bowler Josh Sargeant was brilliant for Bognor, claiming figures of 6-24.
Goring looked destined to suffer a sixth straight defeat to start life back in Division 2, which is what happened, but not without the heroic effort of Keen.
He single-handedly attempted to take his side to victory.
A devastating spell saw him end with figures of 8-43 off 24 overs.
Fellow opening bowler Carmichael claimed the other wicket, although Bognor snuck home reaching 100-9 off 49 overs.
